Taliban militants are doing efforts to impose their own way of life on people of North Western Frontier Province of Pakistan, in Afghanistan Taliban movement became a success story due to wide spread ignorance prevalent among the masses of Afghanistan, now their target is NWFP, where people are quite educated and brave, in Hazara division of NWFP literacy ratio is 99%, Peshawar, Mardan and Charsada districts are quite developed, Pukhtoon Nationalist parties in Mardan and Charsada districts are quite popular. Kohat, DI Khan and Bannu districts of NWFP are also quite developed, even in adjacent tribal areas schools and colleges are established by successive regimes. Certain foreign elements involved in terrorist activity are now suppressed by the local tribesmen in Waziristan.
Taliban movement when failed to get popular support in NWFP and after pro Taliban religious political alliance MMA unceremonious ouster from power in NWFP, militancy in Dara Adam Khel tribal area and sabotage activity in settled areas of NWFP is at increase, top police officials are killed, hundreds of CD shops are destroyed, by Taliban and Alqaida militants in NWFP.
A local CD shop owner in Togh village of Kohat of NWFP province of Pakistan had taken it lightly when he received a threatening letter from Taliban militants in which it was mentioned that the owner shall stop selling CD’s and shall opt for alternate business, consequently a bomb was set off in his shop by militants, not only his shop was completely damaged but ten other adjacent shops were also partially damaged.
After this incident when a threatening letter was received by barber shop owners of Billitang village of Kohat district, barbers had closed down their shops, Taliban militants consider their out look as Islamic, to have a Taliban out look long beard and long hair are the requirement, barbers in tribal and settled areas of NWFP are receiving threats from Taliban militants and due to strong network of the militants they are able to deliver potent threats.
Uprising against Taliban militants within settled and tribal areas is a remote possibility; people have very little knowledge about Islam and their fundamental rights guaranteed by the constitution of Pakistan. In the name of Islam Taliban militants are making efforts to promote their own brand of Islam, the ultimate end of this episode will be full fledge military operation against Jihadi elements within NWFP, a source on condition of anonymity has said that from Iraq to Pakistan and Afghanistan terrorist networks of Jihadi elements are coordinating with each other in their sabotage activity.
